You’ve probably noticed that I’ve changed the name and the look of my blog. I did it because I’ve switched my focus. It wasn’t in my grand scheme of things but as the saying goes: Life is what happens while you’re making other plans. I’ve come to the conclusion that as long as running was my focus, I was going to be plagued by injuries. As much as I love running, I just didn’t want spend a few good weeks running followed by days or weeks of recovery. My recent Achilles tendon issue was just sort of the icing on the cake. It would be dishonest to say that I didn’t have moments of self pity or regret and I’d be lying outright if told you that seeing other runners didn’t fill me with longing but all of that has been rather short lived thanks to my bike. I did more with my running than I could have imagined and I’m very proud of that. So while I’m not going to make any declarations about whether or not I’ll run again, I know it won’t be my focus. At best, running might be an exercise for cross training.
I hope those of you who are following my blog stay with me and I look forward to hearing from other cyclists who I invite to follow me on my new adventures.
